Puyallup Fair MUTTON BUSTIN'!!

Brian took a silver medal with a score of 81pts, only a half point behind gold.  It was a lot of fun, much like the Fourth of July Rodeo where Andrew go to go mutton bustin'

March: Derby's and Birthdays

Andrew's cool pinewood derby car. 
 Painting the car.  He ended up doing pretty well at the race. 
Eric's birthday dinner at Grandma's and Grandpa's 
 Rachel made Eric a birthday card, everyone loved it.  It was funny and clever.
That is Andrew.  I believe he ended up hurting himself by the end of the trampoline session.  I wonder why????? 
Eric with his amazing pokeman ball birthday cake.  I love how my 16 year old wanted legos and pokeman stuff for his birthday.

Daddy Daughter Dance

Rachel at the Daddy Daughter Dance
She was helping me set up at the Dance. My friends were setting up the photo booth and needed a person to stand in while they fixed the lighting.  Rachel got to play model. 

Emily and Rachel.  One of Rachel's best friends. 
Emily is so fun!  Rachel can't get enough of her.

This is my most favorite pictures.  Love these two adorable people!!!
Scott came to the Stake center to get Rach and I some dinner before the dance, and I told him how awesome he would be if he came back dressed up and surprised Rachel. Technically Rachel was there only to help because she was too old to go to the dance.  So, she loved it when Scott showed up, and danced a few songs with her.

The last day of Soccer!  Both our boys love soccer.  They both grew so much this season.  We are happy and sad that it is over.

Rachel is making a place setting for Thanksgiving.  It is an oreo trukey. 
Below are pictures of the Ridgecrest Ward's Turkey Bowl.  Scott and Eric loved it.  They had a fun time.  Scott ended up getting hurt.  He thinks he may have torn his miniscus...Ouch.  Hey, if you're not going to play hard, don't play at all, right! 

Brian's Is 7 year old...

 Brian is 7 years old...
Our favorite Brian quotes from the last year:
1.(At the dinner table) If you throw up in your mouth, just swallow it.  It tastes like chili.
2.(While playing a board game) Move your arm pit!
3. (Just lost a tooth)  Was I supposed to loose that tooth?
4. (in the bathroom) Oh!  It smells so bad in here, I can taste it!
5.(While reading his reading homework with mom...)
The sharks are mean.
Mark sees the sharks.
Mark wants to swim with the sharks.
"Mom, mark isn't too smart is he?"
 Heavy, Heavy hangover thy poor head...
What'cha gunna do with it?
Play with it, work with it, sleep with it, or eat it?
 Play with it!!!
 Scott made a Frankenstein cake for Brian!!
He cheated a little and used a mold.
 For Brian's party, we played charades. Eric's word was Jar...???
After the time ran out, and he was asked about it, he said, "I was in a jar"
 We also did dounuts on a string...

October Fun

 For Halloween, Eric was a Star Trek captain.  He even has a phaser.
Rachel was a Raccoon.   
Andrew was a Tron Guy 
Brian was a ghost 
 At Ferrucci Jr. High, because they cannot celebrate Halloween, they have a spirit day called "Fake injury day", so she really went all out, and Scott taped an i.v. to her arm, and put make-up all over her and this is how she went to school that day.
 Her injury was a raccoon attack.
Pumkin carving at the Nelsons 
 Wendy's Birthday...Look at that cake.  Scott did a great job!!
We have also been doing lots of Soccer with the two younger boys. This is Brian scoring!! 
He is hard to see, but his hands are up in victory!

We "got our happy on" and did the Puyallup Fair

We always go for the food...
This year Grandpa treated the kids to their fried fantasies.
Fried Snickers
Fried Rice Krispy Treat 
 We had a Russian perogi, corndogs, earthquake burgers, Curry food, and a Turkey Leg. 
Fun Hats 
Took Pictures at the antique picture studio... 
I'm sure that I am biased, but they have got to be the cutest children I know, inside and out. 
 You just gotta love 'em!
Played 4 carnival games, won 4 small stuffies 
 We shot archery
 got forearm face painting
At the end of the day, we had a strawberry funnel cake.
Now we are broke, and have lots of working out to do. 
 Fairs are Fun!
